I would guess it could wear on the bottom of the mast and mostly if the shrouds are flexing from the temp change, it could make things wear. Also if water9meltig snow etc) got under the mast, it could do bad things. It isn't that tough to drop the mast and secure it with a big tarp covering everything. FS 1385
